Around 30 workers at the company's newly-opened Iracemápolis plant in Brazil have undergone training at the Chakan facility. The plant in the South American country will initially roll out C-Class to be followed by the the GLA compact SUV with an initial capacity of 20,000 units
per annum.
Mercedes-Benz India Managing Director & CEO Roland Folger said in a statement: "India is a forerunner among Mercedes- Benz's assembly plants globally, and in the past we have
already supported the plant in Vietnam in the global network."
He further said, "Our contribution in training the Brazilian colleagues also strongly underscores our prowess and rich experience in local production of luxury cars, which we have pioneered 20 years back in India."
Both the teams gained in creating trust, a bond of friendship beyond cultures and continents, and being an ideal example demonstrating the strength of collaborative working, he added.
Although the Brazilian workers were also trained at other global facilities of the company, India was a key location as the plant in Pune produces the C-Class, which is also being rolled out from the Iracemápolis plant.
A Mercedes-Benz India official said that being a part of a the parent's global assembly network such cooperation would be continued in future also.

Mercedes-Benz India Executive Director, Operations, Piyush Arora said the training was targeted to build a competent team required to smoothly start-up and run the production process
in Brazil.

"We trained our Brazilian colleagues on how to build a product in the right sequence, with the right tools, in the right time," he added.
